Debuting with a public-welcome reception between 7 and 9 p.m. — and staying up on the walls and walkways of the riverfront hotel’s lobby and atrium through late August — the exhibit of paintings is the latest offering from curator Gerda Liebmann, the Swiss-born multimedia specialist who coordinates the ongoing series of art installations at the riverfront hotel.

It’s also one of several art events going on in and around Red Bank in the days ahead; take it around the corner for more.

RED BANK: GOLD STAR FOR TEACHERS

BCC ArtFor the latest in the new season of monthly exhibitions at their Monmouth Street gallery space, the members of The Art Alliance of Monmouth County have issued a challenge to art teachers and other educators from the area’s places of higher learning — by inviting them to put their own works forward for public scrutiny.

Beginning with an opening reception on Saturday, January 10, a total of 40 faculty and staff members from both Brookdale Community College and Monmouth University will take part in a special Invitational Show, curated by BCC professor and painter Colleen Lineberry. The group show spotlights pieces in a variety of media — among them “Blue Furry Cacti on Pink and White Marbled Mountain” (pictured), a gouache painting by Brookdale’s Shaden Mousa.
